Nutrition for your soul? Or just some clever marketing by organic food suppliers?

I stopped at the bagel place on my way to work today. Next to the bagel store, which is, ironically called Heavenly Bagels, is a Christian bookstore. Plastered on the window of that store were posters for bible nutrition. What caught my eye was not really the bible bar, but the poster proclaiming the bible nutrition system to be "Nutrition the way God intended it." There's a whole slew of products you can buy, all specially designed to get your stomach as close to god as possible.

It says "helps regulate appetite," but with those kind of ingredients, it's gonna regulate more than that. All your biblical nutrients are gonna end being flushed if you know what I mean.

The more man processes his food, the less biblical it is, so sayeth the makers of biblical nutrition products. I don't know about you, but when I eat, I don't make my food decisions based on whether it's spiritually acceptable. I can see the point about not eating additives and eating organic food, but I can't condone the idea of using god as a marketing tool, even if I am an atheist.

Notice the lack of apples in the ingredients.

Yep, I am in a blogging mood tonight. More of my astounding day after I eat some non-religious Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Comments

I am going to hell.

I mentioned this to my cubicle mates. One girl wanted to change it to the Jesus bar, and my supervisor stood up, spread her arms in a crucifitionesque manner, and said "Need a break? Have a Jesus bar!"

there was a potential for granola bar-computer monitor disaster, but it passed safely. :)

God is always telling me to eat Snickers bars. Is that the same thing?

Hey, maybe this is what DJ meant when he sang about mom eating jesus!

Can someone please tell Jason Alexander he's not entertaining anymore so he'll stop doing KFC commercials?

Even Bobby Knight was able to tell his pre-game-praying players that God didn't give a rat's ass about who won a basketball game.

I know God doesn't care if I eat processed food as long as I didn't kill, commit adultery, etc., to get it. So most of the time I'm ok ...

Bwahahaha!!!

It's been done before. Goats did a series on ""Jesus Peanut Butter Cups." There's no wrong way to eat a Jesus.

Yea, but that was a joke Keith. This is real, which makes it all the more better.

the priests I ate never had any problems...not!

Grab a Saviour Snack and... (whistling)...Always look on the bright side of life!

Or do we have to ask Eric Idle for the rights to that song?

My brother's improv troupe once did an Easter show featuring a chocolate Jesus.

The lead singer, a good friend of mine, is named Chocolate Jesus.

But . . .but . . .it contains the 7 foods of Deuteronomy!

The Gurus of Unix Meeting of Minds (GUMM) takes place Wednesday, April
1, 2076 (check THAT in your perpetual calendar program), 14 feet above
the ground directly in front of the Milpitas Gumps. Members will grep
each other by the hand (after intro), yacc a lot, smoke filtered
chroots in pipes, chown with forks, use the wc (unless uuclean), fseek
nice zombie processes, strip, and sleep, but not, we hope, od. Three
days will be devoted to discussion of the ramifications of whodo. Two
seconds have been allotted for a complete rundown of all the user-
friendly features of Unix. Seminars include Everything You Know is
Wrong, led by Tom Kempson, Batman or Cat:man? led by Richie Dennis
cc C? Si! Si! led by Kerwin Bernighan, and Document Unix, Are You
Kidding? led by Jan Yeats. No Reader Service No. is necessary because
all GUGUs (Gurus of Unix Group of Users) already know everything we
could tell them.
